Marks & Spencer features Olive Puentespina’s Life+Style

Malagos Farmhouse is Olive Puentepina’s concept that had earned her spot in being the best cheesemaker in Davao and in the country. Her cheesemaking story started in Year 2000 with three goats, Marvin, Jolina and Rica, the onset of Olive’s husband-veterinarian collection of ruminants. The number grew with each farm visit, and grew more as the goats bred.

In 2008, Olive officially started producing cheese under the Malagos Farmhouse brand.” On Olive: M&S white linen ruffle sleeve top and black linen pants.

Olive bottled fresh goat’s milk to sell. It didn’t click. Goat’s milk soap was out of the question since it used very little milk. How else can milk be preserved, asked the UPLB-graduate who worked at the university’s Dairy Training and Research Institute? Cheese. So started Olive Puentespina’s cheesemaking career.

She took lessons from a colleague, then from two Swiss cheese masters from Pontresina, Master’s classes in San Francisco, and so on. “My cheese journey—getting educated in dairying and cheese making— has brought me to the US, Mongolia, Canada, Switzerland, Italy. And with each travel, I learn more,” she shared.

“I think I started European style artisan cheese making in the Philippines. I am proud that the cheeses I make are on the top tables of the best hotels, restaurants and resorts and airline in the country.” On Olive: M&S palm linen top with khaki linen pants.

In 2008, Olive officially started producing cheese under the Malagos Farmhouse brand. Sans advertising and social media promotions, Malagos Cheese has become one of the most popular Davao products in the country today.

“I think I started European style artisan cheese making in the Philippines. I am proud that the cheeses I make are on the top tables of the best hotels, restaurants and resorts and airline in the Philippines. That is more than what I can ask for.”

“My cheese and I are one. I probably have no life outside of the cheese room, but I am having so much fun.” On Olive: M&S stripe tie front linen blouse, white linen pants & canvas trainer.

She’s such an inspiration, and her style compliments her success. Check out Marks and Spencer at the Ground Level of Ayala Center Cebu for more style options.

Marks & Spencer: Style for Moms

If only you call her a Super Woman – a successful career, a responsible daughter and a sister, and above all, a wife and a mother.

She takes these with all her heart, without complaining, even as she needs to haggle from Davao to Cebu City from where she originally comes from.

It was in 2002 when Yoga instructor Joanna Christina Lizares-Co, 46, married Dabawenyo businessman Zosimo Co. She moved to Davao City in the same year and since then, Joanna has considered the city as her second home. The couple is blessed with two beautiful girls – Gianna Simone, 12, and Simmina Christina, 9.

But a loving daughter that she is, she has remained in close touch with her family in Cebu even if it means regular visits to her father and siblings. On the average, she and her family travel to her hometown three times a year to bond with her brother and sister and friends. Her father passed away last December.

“I moved to Davao in 2002 and when I went home to Cebu, my time centered on my dad. Whenever my dad asked me to come home, I was there right away. Unfortunately, he passed away in December 2017, “ she said in an online interview. “But I promised my brother and sister we’d continue to visit.”

Even it would mean being away from her Cebu family, her decision to join her loving and a very supportive husband in Davao City was just right and she never regretted it. Although she admitted that her new base is somewhat “laid back” as compared to Cebu, this is what she likes most about living in Davao.

“It wasn’t so bad. I’m a homebody and my husband Sim made it quite easier. He had a lovely home and saw to it we would enjoy what Davao had to offer,” she said, adding that “Davao is where I have my two girls. I feel a sense of grounding here. Cebu may have been home to me, but this is where I want to stay for now.”

“My happy place is with my two girls and my husband,” she said.

HANDS ON MOM

As a Yoga instructor, Joanna has a tight schedule holding three to four classes a day. But this never affected her responsibility as a mother and a wife. She knows how to deal with this.

“I’m up at 5 a.m. Monday to Saturdays since my first yoga class is at 7 a.m.  Some time after, I check if my girls are up for school.  I teach 3-4 yoga classes spread out in the day so I get to go home in between classes or do my chores,” she said.

While at home, Joanna makes it a point to work on her other interests, spending an hour doing calligraphy, another hour practicing with watercolor or craftwork, another hour to write on her diary, journal, update her schedule.

“Dinnertime is with my husband and kids, where we talk about anything.  I cap off the day reading.  At around 10 p.m.  I’m asleep.  Weekends are with my girls and they have all my attention.  We play board games, do arts and crafts, go to the mall, watch movies, and eat,” she said.

They also travel once a year, a kind of family bonding that revolves around her two girls. “We get to be more adventurous only when Sim and I travel on our own,” she said.

It’s full of laughter the way she describes her relationship with her family.

 

 A CAREER WOMAN

It was in 2011 when Joanna started to practice yoga, which she describes as ”a holistic approach to health, wellness, and mindfulness.”

She never expected to become a yoga teacher and just wanted to be good in it, basically the reason she took the Hatha Yoga teacher training program that was offered in Davao City in 2014.

“This really just happened to fall on my lap…I simply wanted to do better in my yoga practice. But what do you know?  I immediately got an offer to teach at Holiday Gym Davao so I took the opportunity. It has been three wonderful years being a yoga teacher,” she confidently said.

Joanna is grateful she was introduced to such practice, which she said help her improve her well-being, her outlook in life, promoting healthy living which has become her advocacy.

“Yoga introduced me to mindfulness.  Just when I thought I perfected multitasking, I get shifted back to doing things one at a time.  This mental practice of awareness and staying in the present moment has allowed me to manage my time even better.  There is a time for study, for hobbies, for work, for play, etc.,” she said.

“In my personal experience, its getting people to understand that there are no quick fixes.  We must allow the process to work and take place.  If it is slow, it’s more lasting,” she stressed.

 

HER FASHION SENSE
Joanna isn’t the shopaholic type, but for arts and crafts, she is one, making it a weekly chore. “For clothes? Only when I need to and when the occasion calls for it,” she said.

She admitted to be a classic dresser and does not sacrifice function for form or style this why she loves shopping at Marks & Spencer because the selections fit her fashion style.

“You won’t find me jumping on the latest fashion just because it’s the trend.  I have to like it a lot and be comfortable in it for me to wear,” she said.

What occupies her closet aside from, of course, yoga pieces? ”It’s shoes and bags!  Stretch pants, white shirts, cardigans, day dresses, sleeveless tops, scarves and shawls,” she said.

And a piece of advise to women out there who want to feel they have a complete wardrobe in their closet, Joanna has this to say: It should contain white cotton button-down shirt, a little black dress, dark denim jeans, white shorts, knit tops, black pants, printed day dress, plain sheath dress, blazer, black pumps, neutral ballet flats, metallic evening shoes, scarves, black tote.

 

LIFE, LIVING IT WELL

The way things are going for Joanna only prove the possibility of just she living life to the fullest with focus on improving it as a career woman, a loving sister and a responsible wife and a mother. And this makes her a happy person.

“It is a happy, healthy life purposefully lived.  At the end of my life, I would want to be able to say that with all the talents God has given me, I have multiplied it, and spent it well for the purpose given me. We only have one life, I do not wish otherwise but to live it full with my family,” she said

“I try to take care of my body, eat well, stay fit, and take time to meditate.  I believe that if I take good care of myself (mind and body), I can take care of my family and others better, and be more effective in the things I do.  I am not known to do things half-baked.  I get into something because I am passionate about it.  And when I am passionate in the things I do, I do well,” she concluded.

Giordano opens at a new location with Stylish Bank on Basics Campaign

Well-made timeless basics, whether it’s a crisp white polo or a pair of well-fitted khakis, are a great foundation to any wardrobe. But more often than not, high quality basics come with a hefty price tag.

June 2015, Giordano opened its new location in Ayala Center Cebu with the launch of the Bank on Basics campaign. The fresh interior and minimalist design of the new store located at the  Ground Level of Ayala Center Cebu Main Mall (fronting Metro Ayala Supermarket) carries Giordano new colorful basics in budget-friendly prices, while existing pieces come in discounted prices.

“Giordano has always been in the business of creating high quality basics and we know that basics will never go out of style. So for a limited time only, you can buy these essential pieces at discounted prices in all Giordano stores nationwide,” Rochelle Tan said, Giordano Philippines’ VP for Merchandising.

The Bank on Basics campaign include a curated selection of shorts, pants, shirts and tees that will surely add that much-needed splash of color to the coming gloomy months. Extend summer, or at least the feeling of freedom and fun summer brings, by pairing a classic plaid or casual shirt with colorful Giordano shorts. Folded khakis in different colors are also available for a more preppy yet relaxed look.

Linen and oxford fabrics take the center stage in Giordano’s collection of basic shirts which are perfect casual and formal gatherings with friends, workmates and family.

“These classic yet chic fashion pieces can certainly stand the test of time. So don’t miss these wardrobe essentials and head to the nearest Giordano store now,” Tan said.

People Footwear’s The Phillips

It’s always a best idea to invest on a good pair of footwear. Design + comfort are on the very top of my list when choosing shoes. One particular pair I got last year was a set of Phillips by People Footwear, and it has been one of my favorites since. Its minimalist and classic design make The Phillips a perfect choice for an urban yet adventure-thirsty guy like me.

My first pair of People Footwear is a black Phillips, which goes well with almost anything in my wardrobe. My iPhone 6 even went matchy matchy with my Black Phillips after scoring a Hamilton iPhone 6 Case online. And yes I do shop for stylish tech accessories at zalora.com.ph. 😉

People Footwear’s The Phillips and other footwear line under the brand offer a contemporary design of common sense in a shoe that is stripped down to its simplest form; no fuss, timeless and ergonomic shoe architecture.

What’re the qualities I love about People Footwear’s The Phillips? 

The Phillips, one of four People Footwear’s hybrid designs, is made of breathable mesh + 3D printing combo ensuring breath-ability and durability. Breathability allows The Phillips to dry fast and gives the  feet a refreshing feeling because the mesh allows the air and moisture to breath on the shoes.

People Footwear’s Skylite Trademark outsole is made very lightweight, greatly reducing stress and provide outmost comfort. And with or without socks, the SuperCush soft density form-fitting sockliner is so cushy, it won’t give you blisters.

So where can I get a pair of People Footwear in Cebu?

Just this week, new colors of The Phillips and the other designs are on stock at Res |Toe|Run Ayala Center Cebu and I got my eyes on the Olive Green Phillips! I’ll soon have more adventures this coming weeks with my newest pair of The Phillips from People Footwear; because sometimes, it all starts with wearing what looks and feels right. 😉

Yves Camingue’s 2011 Collection: Goma Bella

2011 Collection: GOMA BELLA

Goma Bella

 
GOMA BELLA is a fragmented portmanteau of the Filipino flower-name “Gumamela” (Hibiscus): featuring “Goma” and “Bella” – both Spanish-translated words for “gum” and “lady”, respectively.

Goma Bella

Goma Bella is a lady discovery of Yves Camingue inspired by the roseate tones of a Boracay sunset, 70s sensuality and icons Bianca Jagger and former model Marie Helvin. The modern Goma Bella lady is graceful, naturally radiant, pleasing and gregarious.

Goma Bella

This is the brand’s most “feminine” collection to date, featuring movement; billowy silhouettes and all color, with just a pair of neutrals. The radical-unusualness comes in the collaboration of differently textured chiffon and hues. TRANSPARENCY andMOVEMENT come into the limelight. Body figures going beyond a small would not worry since the dresses have an elastic wised-waist band to adjust to their own figures.

Goma Bella

Goma Bella

Goma Bella succeeded the Yves Identify’s Holiday 2010 collection entitled Scuave (scuba + scuave): an urban-cool mix of the Technicolor 80s, the band Kraftwerk and sleek sportswear, especially scuba diving.
